Oh man food overdozzzzeeeeeee. We took a quick trip to Taipei during Golden Week (a.k.a. China national week, one of only two weeks out of the whole year when China gives their people public holiday) mostly to stuff our face with too much food and peruse our favourite shopping area DongQu 東區 and night markets. I gotta admit major fail on my part in terms of planning this trip cos everywhere we wanted to go ended up not working out and every time I took us in a certain direction to walk, turned out to be the complete wrong way. I’m normally really truly excellent at this type of stuff but I guess I was thrown off by all the food I was thinking of to eat that night. Notable meals: Hot pot at Tai Ho Dian 太和殿 (even though the first time we ate there last year we were so utterly insanely impossibly unimpressed but we decided to give it a 2nd chance anyway), our TWO meals at Addiction Aquatic Development (more on that in another post) and afternoon tea at Smith&Hsu.

By the way, thanks for all your comments on my previous post. I totally agree that instagram and blogging are still two completely separate entities and it’s nice to know that people are still into reading blogs and especially READING blogs not just browsing pretty pictures. You guys rock.

Taiwan has the highest concentration of convenience stores of any country in the world. You just can’t beat 7/11 twisty ice cream.
